It’s All In Your Head? 9 Strange Cases Of Mass Hysteria
Mumbai Sweet Water
Mumbai -- and India in general -- isn't someplace we associate with delicious tasting water. But in 2006, residents of the city claimed that Mahim Creek, one of the most polluted creeks in the country, was suddenly sweet.

Just a day later, though, the water reportedly tasted brackish again.
